We’re starting right where we left off this week – Issa stares down a hospital corridor at Lawrence and his lovely little family, Condola and Eli. To Condolad and Lawrence’s relief, Issa asks if they can pretend it isn’t embarrassing. Sentimental music sets in as Condola and Lawrence watch Issa hold Eli. Then Issa but the baby, yells: “Fuck them kids!” and kicks Condola in the chest before cackling insanely.

It’s a hell of a way to end a fantasy sequence, especially one with such an emotionally charged setup. But that’s what Issa needed – this should be her life with Lawrence. At home, she searches for Lawrence on Instagram and finds out that Lawrence moved back to LA and never bothered to tell her. It is not information she owes as it has been more than a year since their split and she is with someone herself. But she is visibly shocked by the news. This probably isn’t the end of those two.

Later, while having sex with Nathan, Issa tries to get him to love her, but he doesn’t get the hint. After that, while they are cuddling, she tries again, but Nathan is either extremely clueless or deliberately refusing to say those three little words. Issa, on the other hand, seems to be nearing the end of her rope.

At The Clips, top hairdresser Shug is late and all of his clients are waiting. This is common at Shug, but Aric (Curtis Hamilton) points out that Shug’s celebrity customers are the reason the store gets blown up. But when one of the men begs for a haircut, Nathan obliges the Black Man, Cardinal Sin ™, to cut another barber’s client. Expect a setback for this one, Nathan!

Back at the hospital, Issa brings lunch to Molly’s family, who are still on guard for her mother at the hospital. Molly calls her check-in from a work retreat and confesses that she feels guilty about not being in the hospital. She worries that her mother will never wake up and that she will miss her final moments.

Issa and Quoia later celebrate Los Angeles magazine adding The Blocc’s Art Walk to their calendar of events. They introduce a group that they would like to attend the event and how enthusiastic NBW is about sponsoring them. But they decide The Blocc event is not for them because Issa’s beef is with crenshawn. It seems that her little Twitter Tiff has had a lasting impact on Issa’s reputation.

Molly is distracted at a semi-casual cocktail hour in her work retreat, waiting for news of her mother. They elicit her cell phone and talk about how far Molly has come since she started. The next morning, Molly wakes up late, hungover, half-dressed and confused with a strange watch in her bed. It turns out that the clock is from Taurean. They didn’t sleep together, but Molly had a wild night. They pull out a video where she goes absolutely wild. You don’t seem to blame her, but she’s ashamed.

Issa apologizes to Crenshawn (with a pan of brownies ??), but frames their argument as a mutual misstep. Crenshawn didn’t, and points out that he was upset because she cared more about her relationship with NBW than supporting his artistic vision. Issa doesn’t take this well, saying she isn’t wrong in taking opportunities to focus on her passion instead of dividing her time between weekend projects and driving Lyft. But Crenshawn reminds her that The Blocc shouldn’t be about money. It should be about uplifting black culture. She inspired him to join in and then paced him when the check threatened. He tells her that she made up her mind to leave him and that she should own it. Then he shows her the new sweatshirt that inspired her – a red and blue ombre crew neck with the words “Integrity” in gold thread on the chest. Issa is understandably defensive, but Crenshawn is right that she acted out of fear rather than principle, even if it felt like the right decision at the time.

Back at The Clips, Shug finally shows his face – as always late – while the hairdressers pay their booth rental. When Aric asks for his stake, Shug says that Nathan will cover his stake since he’s so comfortable stealing his customers. They argue about it until Shug threatens to take his famous clients elsewhere, and when Nathan essentially tells him to make sure the door doesn’t hit him on the way out, Shug confronts him and calls him crazy about his bipolar diagnosis .

As Molly and Taurean begin their marketing presentation, Curtis begins blowing up her cell phone. She sways the presentation, but Taurean takes cover. It’s the kind of thing that would have made her angry when she first came to the company, but she’s grateful for that now. Later that evening they have a drink and Taurean asks if she is okay. And in a rare moment of vulnerability, Molly tells him the truth. Taurean wonders why she was able to work at all because of her family emergency, but admits that he went through something similar. He tells her that work cannot take precedence over her life and that he is always there to support her when she needs it.

Issa has a different fantasy: she’s waiting in line for food when Condola walks up to her and thanks her for leaving Lawrence. She mocks her, telling Issa that she and Lawrence are back together, engaged, and happy, and that his cock grew two inches after he got a new job that grossed him a billion dollars. Condola’s parting words, “Own Choices,” make it clear that Issa is still thinking about her conversation with Crenshawn earlier that day. It’s almost like their behavior … is a pattern?

Later, Curtis calls Molly with good news, her mother is finally awake and can leave the hospital tomorrow. As always, her first instinct is to take action, but Curtis assures her that everything will be fine. As she hangs up the phone, Molly tears open, releasing the pent-up tension that she carries with her. At that moment, Taurean knocks on the door of her hotel room to bring her a gift bag from the partners. When she opens the door, Molly hugs him in relief, but it stays only a little too long. It feels safe to predict that this pairing might be the “the right guy has been under her nose all along” strain.

When Issa comes over to Nathan for dinner, he tells her that he might have finished The Clips and that he’s not sure if LA is even for him. Issa resists, then … somehow manages to keep Nathan from saying “I love you” back. She says she feels she chose him, but he didn’t do the same for her. Nathan points out that their affections were conflicting. You went from tearful sex to slow infatuation in a matter of weeks, and he can’t keep up. They drop it and have dinner in silence.

There are only four episodes left from the final season and a lot of story ground to cover. But there are only so many ways things can end when the chess pieces move across the board. What will the future bring?

• “I swear I saw someone run a coyote on my way here. White people try to make pets of everything. ”- Nathan

• “I didn’t know I wasn’t ugly until you became my hairdresser.” – Nathan’s client

• “DR. Sebi said cow cheese was poisonous. White people know. ”- Jerome

• “Your mother knows that you love her. And your family doesn’t even miss you. Your father said, ‘Who is Molly?’ And I was like ‘your daughter!’ ”- Issa

• “It was just a loss of confidence. William dropped Patrice again. “” She won’t trust anyone. ” – colleague / Molly

• “Wow, I didn’t even notice! You still managed to hold everything together and still be so rude. ”- Molly

• “Yes, we are engaged. Oh, and it’s not the shopping ring he bought you. It’s bigger. ”- Condola

• “She still doesn’t speak, but her eyes said ‘Molly is a disappointment’.” – Curtis
